Can't host games...

#1DartDragoonPosted 7/11/2012 3:37:12 PM
Anyone know why I can't host any games ? Everytime I start a "LISTEN" game and I invite people, it always says "Server not responding" for them.

I don't really know how to troubleshoot what's wrong or not

I know mine says that because I haven't forwarded any of the ports the game uses. That might be your problem.

Sector Z was the worst Nintendo game I wasted my money on. Nothing reminds me of it, thankfully. - dueric

Yup its a port thing.
Swapping router may fix it if u dont wanna get technical.

The following is a list of ports used by Killing Floor. Make sure they are open in your router/firewall. (You will need these to host a listen server)

7707 UDP/IP (Game Port)
7708 UDP/IP (Query Port)
7717 UDP/IP (GameSpy Query Port)
28852 TCP/IP and UDP (Allows your Server to Connect to the Master Server Browser)
8075 TCP/IP (Port set via ListenPort that your WebAdmin will run on)
20560 UDP/IP (Steam Port)


Another setting you might have to deal with when hosting a listen server in your killingfloor.ini is:

ServerBehindNAT=False Set it to True

Handy internet tools I've been pointed too (thanks Sarkie) to test if your ports are open - GRC Shields Up https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2
